We want to post decklists so please prepare a list to bring with you. You can print a form from this https://wpn.wizards.com/sites/wpn/files/attachements/mtg_constructed_deck_registration_sheet_pdf11.pdf official DCI form and fill it in by hand with a pen, but for anyone with a little more ambition (or not such good handwriting:) ) you can use decklist.org to generate a listing or you can use this http://files.curby.net/l/mtg_constructed_deck_registration_sheet_pdf11_interactive.pdf fillable, DCI-compatible PDF. Use whatever works for you, but please see if you can help out by bringing a decklist.
Why would you want to play this card over the plethora of alternatives that are all more broken and more practical?
What does this card enable that you couldn't do before that is better than what the current combo decks are doing?
I have a hard time buying that you end up ahead vs a control deck by putting 6 mana into this card (which can be pyroblasted or flusterstormed) to get it countered and recasting it on the following turn. Or even that this is a frequent enough occurrence to be reliable.
I tried to cover that but allow me to expand on the point more. Cards that have abilities from graveyards or from being discarded turn a negative into a positive and have the potential for considerable abuse. The Dredge mechanic, Hogaak, Arclight Phoenix, Vengevine, Cabal Therapy... there are so many examples from Vintage and other formats, past and present. It is the same quality that makes Echo contextually better than Timetwister and every other Draw 7.
